" Like a Virgin " is a song recorded by American singer Madonna for her second studio album Like a Virgin (1984). It was released on October 31, 1984, by the Sire label as the album's lead single. The song was written by Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg, and produced by Nile Rodgers ; Steinberg said that the song was inspired by his personal experiences of romance. "Like a Virgin" was chosen for Madonna by Michael Ostin of Warner Bros. Records after listening to a demo sung by Kelly. However, Rodgers initially felt that the song did not have a sufficient hook and was not suitable for Madonna, but subsequently changed his opinion after the hook was stuck in his mind." - LoveGame

"Vogue" is a song by American singer Madonna from her second soundtrack album I'm Breathless (1990). It was released as the first single from the album on March 27, 1990, by Sire Records. Madonna was inspired by vogue dancers and choreographers Jose Gutierez Xtravaganza and Luis Xtravaganza from the Harlem "House Ball" community, the origin of the dance form, and they introduced "Vogueing" to her at the Sound Factory club in New York City. "Vogue" later appeared on her greatest hits compilation albums, The Immaculate Collection (1990) and Celebration (2009)." - LoveGame
I prefer Deeper and Deeper for that hi-class Cabaret feel. It’s more subtle and glossy but mines the Latin / Big Band sound as well.
I love Vogue because it has become iconic. It was everywhere in 1990, in 41 countries. - genomel
" Vision of Love " is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. It served as Carey's debut single, the first from her eponymous debut album.

Lyrically, the song describes a past and present relationship with a lover. Carey describes the "vision of love" she dreamed of, as well as the present love she feels for him." - LoveGame
